I love the story so far, it has made me laugh several times =) and I applaude the Year 1 reference in the last paragraph =P The only thing I wasn't too sure about was the fact that Harry gave up the Muggle part of his life completely, it doesn't seem right to me for some reason. Besides the fact that most grown men don't know a whole lot about cars anyway. Unless they're professionals or grew up around someone who was a mechanic, whether professionally or for leisure. Please update soon =) (and if you're suffering from writer's block, hope you get over it soon. they can be such pain in the necks)

Author's Response: Well, as far as Harry giving up his Muggle way of life, my thinking was always that Harry would associate being a Muggle with being unwanted and abused, where as in the wizarding world, he is beloved by many people and thought of as a hero. Not to mention he wasn't very old when he learned he was a wizard, so is exposure to Muggle culture and his previous attitudes towards Muggles would leave much less of an impression than Muggle-born children who came from loving homes. But that's just the way I saw it. It's open to interpretation.
I like Scorpius, he's quirky in a good way. Why is he so interested in Rose going to drama club? Honestly if I were Rose, at Scorpius's last comment, he've been slapped upside the head XD Please update soon =)

Author's Response: Thank you very much for reading this and for the review!
I didn't mean for this to happen. Really. My plan was to get through sixth-year without doing any more damage to myself. I've already wrecked so many good things in my life. I thought I was done with my self-destruction.
Apparently, I'm not. Because falling in love with Albus was not part of my plan.
Poor Maddy!!! I had tears in my eyes as I read that. I really hope Charlotte screws up and Maddy and Al can be together.
Author's Response: Well, you'll have to keep reading to see what happens next, but a little hint - a lot of screwed up things happen in the next few chapters :) Thanks for reviewing!
Poor Maddy =( The story is really good so far. I'm wondering what exactly happened between Maddy and Charlotte but I'm sure it will be highlighted in a later chapter? Please update soon =)

Author's Response: Yep, some of it's been foreshadowed already, but the big bit's coming up a chapter or two's time. Thanks for your review!
We are all influenced by the actions or inactions of our parents. The same is true of Scorpius Malfoy; he has been raised by an overly protective mother and a father who is still coming to grips with the mess that his own father made of his life. Scorpius knows that he will be judged at Hogwarts by what others know or think they know about his father and grandfather.
At Hogwarts Scorpius will meet:
Albus Potter the middle child of ‘The Great Harry Potter’ and Quidditch star Ginny Weasley Potter. A boy who not only has things to live up to but an older brother ready to remind him of who’s boss.
Rose Weasley, Albus’ surrogate sister/first cousin, struggling in her own way, not her mother’s way, to succeed.
Kaitlin Jones, daughter of Tornados player Owain Jones and favorite niece of Gwenog Jones, who is at home on a broom and lost almost everywhere else.
Jimber Dokes recent immigrant from the West Indies trying to fit his own magical heritage Vardoo with the Western style of magic taught at the school
Thad Vance, the Gryffindor Quidditch captain, his grandfather and all of his uncles and aunts were killed by Death Eaters, maybe Lucius Malfoy
Meanwhile in London, Draco and Astoria Malfoy try to build a new life and legacy by betting all they own on a Potions Shop in Diagon Alley.
